comments at 2:00 eastern on c-span3. earlier today homeland secure the secretary janet napolitano testified on capitol hill. she was talking about the 2014 budget request for our department. she discussed the west texas oil refinery explosion and the boston marathon bombs. here's a look. >> i'll begin with west texas as the more recent event and give you the most current information that we have about the explosion. and, of course, our sympathies and concerns go out to the families of those who've lost loved ones or who have had a loved one who has been injured. as of right now the faa has issued a temporary flight restriction over the area. the texas commission on environmental quality is providing air monitoring and technical assistance. texas task force one has been alerted to provide structural collapse support. the union pacific railroad has halted freight service. and local authorities have turned off utility service in the area including gas and electricity. there is an incident command center at a triage center, but they been recently moved due to fears that additional tanks could b
've been working with secretary napolitano and find the way to provide jammers to local police. as far as those with detonators, there is no, other than having more dogs, more surveillance and that appears to what happened here. if it was a detonator, only way to stop there, if there were more police dogs constantly screening the area and, again, we, you know, when there is after-action report from the boston police department we'll have a better idea what happened, how those ieds got there. bill: yeah. understood. did you say jammers? i want to be clear on that, is that the word you used? >> jammers. yeah, jammers can be used against remote controls. bill: what would they do? >> they would prevent an ied going off. it would prevent the person trying to set it off by remote control, it would prevent that from happening. we used them in afghanistan. we used them in iriraq. bill: yeah, i asked that because apparently cell phone service and e-mail service was down several hours month afternoon. were jammers used in the boston after the attack it is. >> i'm not sure. could have been cell p
. >> by the way janet napolitano was testifying on capitol hill about the boston marathon bombings and she said there is no indication this was part of a bigger plot. that's a little bit of breaking news there. >> hal: no -- absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. it doesn't mean they won't be tied to other things later. there is a reason why new york and los angeles and seattle and chicago are all on alert and watching out for stuff like that. because these kind of acts are too easy to do. they are not -- they do not require a level of sophistication. the local law enforcement and fbi all across the country has foiled plots like this before and they go under the radar because they aren't the kind -- they aren't -- >> al-qaeda -- it still exists generally takes credit for this stuff. >> stephanie: that's what i mean. charlie pierce was saying that he and his sportswriter friends have said this is what it is going to be. it won't be the super bowl. it will be one of the last open events like the boston marathon. it is almost impossible to stop somebody from throwing something into a garb
rights. here to explain is fox news judge andrew napolitano. he was finally read his miranda rights. you have to do that within 48 hours? >> theoretically miranda rights should be read immediately as soon as the person is in custody, before you ask him any questions. we don't know exactly what's happened, we'll find out, but the government told us it did not read him his miranda rights, interrogated him for intelligence, not law enforcement purposes. this is highly controversial and could affect the government's case. but at some point in that interrogation which only lasted a few hours, which apparently consisted of him writing answers because he can't speak due to the injury to his throat. at some point in that interrogation, agents, professional interrogators decided we're not going to get anywhere or we've already learned everything we can learn from him. they also have on their shoulder, breathing down their neck, so to speak, a federal rule of procedure which requires he be charged with something within 48 hours. otherwise they have to let him go. they did charge him with this comp
in this case. >> this morning, secretary napolitano said in a hearing on capitol hill, he went overseas to russia, and is the president concern there's a flaw in the system, and if so, is he looking to have a revie of that and having it possibly changed? >> what the president said when he stood here before you late friday evening night was that there are many questions that need to be answered, and that's what a thorough investigation will produce is answers to all the questions that we have about these two individuals, their activities, their thrafl, their associations, what motivated them, and everything that went into the decision that they took to, you know, engage in a terrorist act against people of the united states and boston. that will be all of these questions would be part of this investigation. it is part of the case that will be built against the suspect who is in custody and part of the overall investigation of what happened. >> should he have began -- been on a no-fly list? should people spending that much time in russia be on a no-fly list and just spend time overseas? >
